Custody and an unreasonable ex-spouse

Custody and an unreasonable ex-spouse

Many facets of family law can be difficult to work through, but there are times when these legal matters (from custody to child support and property division) can be especially complicated. For example, someone who is dealing with a former marital partner that has become unreasonable may have a harder time working through these matters for a handful of reasons. If your child’s other parent has become tough to work with, or they are making your life unnecessarily difficult due to hard feelings, for example, it is important to handle your circumstances appropriately and have a clear understanding of your different options.

An ex-spouse could become unreasonable because they are jealous about a new boyfriend or girlfriend or because they are bitter about the divorce. When someone feels this way, it may be impossible to talk to them and reduced communication may make family law issues more challenging to work through. In some instances, someone may even falsely accuse their former partner of wrongdoing in an attempt to win a custody battle. If you are struggling with a former partner who has become very unreasonable, it is critical to take steps to protect yourself, your child’s well-being and your reputation.

With family law issues, emotions can become intense. It is understandable that many people feel angry, depressed or stressed out during these cases, more so if they have an ex who is being hostile. Furthermore, these issues are especially likely to surface when it comes to particularly tough family law matters such as custody disputes.
